Meet Your National League South Season's Big Winners!

By Tom Scott

You always know it’s been a good year when you totally clean up at the end of season awards.

Ebbsfleet United have strong-armed just about everyone over the past eight months and they’ve been brutal even after they’ve finished playing.

Yes, 2022-23 has made for pretty good reading if you’re a Fleet fan!
There’s nothing quite like a little German efficiency to make Dennis Kutrieb feel right at home.

His team have been much more than just methodical, make no mistake.

It’s hardly a surprise then that the side who were crowned champions four weeks from the end of the season take the acclaim.

Kutrieb has piloted the ship superbly and cast aside heartbreaking Promotion Final defeat last May.

He guided the club to 103 Points and 110 goals - and Dom Poleon was the man responsible for a huge whack of them!

The relentless striker served notice of his intention this season after netting 17 times in 2021-22.

But even he couldn’t have imagined he would have hit 36 this time around!

It’s always a worry that if a forward can’t stop scoring, other clubs will come sniffing around.

But the big news for Ebbsfleet fans is that he says he is keen on extending his stay and wants to prove that the club can compete and even realise their EFL ambition.

“I want to stay, for sure,” goal machine Poleon told Kent Online. “I’ve built up a good relationship with the fans, a good relationship with the team. I’m not looking to go anywhere.”
